Our Dai Church in Burien has requested assistance from our conference
churches for immediate humanitarian aid for their families who have been forced
to flee the town of Mindat, Chin State in Myanmar.
Last week the military violently occupied the town and killed, arrested, or forced all men in the city to flee into the jungles. Communication with those who are living in this area is sporadic and medical and basic living necessities (food, water, etc.) is extremely limited.
Our Dai Church has identified a channel by which they can get these items to their people but need help financially to purchase them. They have set a goal of $15,000 to send by early June (THE NEED IS IMMMEDIATE). They are committed to raise $5000 from their own congregation and have asked the conference to join with them for the remaining $10,000 ($50 will provide for a family of 4 for two weeks).
The conference will be giving a special humanitarian grant through the Board of Cross-Cultural Outreach, but all of our conference churches are invited to join us in this need.
While money is needed, prayer for these brothers and sisters in their time of need and suffering is absolutely necessary. Please join with us as we reach out to God on their behalf.
